Top Customer Reviews
Fine-Tuning Your Awareness (pages 225-232): Holland shares ideas on how people can increase their own psychic skills.
Frequently Asked Questions (pages 203-212): He answers the most popular questions that are asked about the spirit world. The question and answer I found most interesting revolved around the different levels that exist in the spirit realm.
Our Parents (Pages 135-144): Heartfelt communication is transmitted between John Holland and some of the men and women who miss both and/or one of their parents who have crossed over
Spirit Boot Camp (Pages 73-82): John Holland shares the rewarding journeys that he experienced at The Arthur Findlay College.
"Born Knowing" is a great book for those who like psychic autobiographies with details on ways to increase intuition.
John shares with compassion on how difficult it is to accept multisensory awareness. I know, as I went through that same process. It's not an easy one, and John encourages all who do have this gift to honor it, and in so doing, you will be serving humanity much more than staying in a spiritual closet.
John brings to light that the life of our loved ones IS alive, and they are with us, we just have to believe that just because we can't see them with our eyes, does NOT mean that they aren't here!
This book is a wonderful contribution to raise the spiritual consciousness of all people. It will open your mind, and teach you much!
Highly recommended from my heart, Barbara Rose, author of 'Individual Power' and 'If God Was Like Man'. Borntoinspire.Com
Holland begins with his early life, when his father called him "the different one." After moving to California, he had more and more psychic and mediumistic experiences. "I had to figure out a way to harness this energy or gift so that I could live my own life," he writes. It was not until he went to England at age 34 that he began to fully understand and develop his gift. There he attended Arthur Findlay College, the center of spiritual and psychic investigation and instruction in the UK. When he returned to the United States, he no longer found it necessary to supress his talents as he now understood how to use them.
Holland relates a number of very interesting, informative, intriguing, and inspirational stories. As an example, there is the story of Dick, a skeptical but open-minded East Coast radio announcer. Dick's deceased father came through with his name, Carl. As evidence, Carl mentioned to his son how they once enjoyed listening to Al Jolson phonograph records together. Later in the reading, Carl told his son to give his love to his girlfriend. Dick laughed, unaware of any girlfriend. The father then explained that the woman lived in the apartment above him. Dick later investigated and confirmed that his father had had a romantic relationship with the woman in the apartment above, but had kept it to himself because he wasn't sure his children would approve. Such evidence as this, information unknown to the sitter, seemingly rules out telepathy or mind reading on the part of the medium.Read more ›
